Companies we engage are selected after qualifying through our Decision Matrix. The apogee team likes working with founders at the earlier and later stages of company capital raising. We always are working inside our offices, within shouting distance of channel partners.
We are careful to assist companies only in the areas where they need our help to flourish–nothing more. For growth stage companies already selling products or services, we want to partner with management develop their enterprises through successful, venture capital or private equity rounds.
Our arsenal of services, each staffed by experienced practitioners, can help shorten acceleration cycles, ferret out new customers, establish international distribution and recruit engineers and management members. Our two offices in New York and California extend our reach.
Apogee and subsidiaries receive more than 2000 Executive Summaries/Business Plans a year. We have analysts that bump out close to 98% of them because they don’t meet our criteria. We only look at companies that have at least a $10-million-dollar valuation or trailing revenues, because ideally we like to be putting $25 million and up into a company, and you have to be a certain scale to take that much capital. There are two phases of our business: taking you from $10 million to $100 million, then taking you from $100 million to $1 billion.
